Every enamel dial is a unique, uncommon part crafted entirely by the hands of an experienced enameller. These traditional techniques have been passed down the ages, without alteration to their essential requirements, formulas and know-how.

The colour obtained remains unaffected by time or external factors, and stays the same year after year.

Issued in an exceptional ten-piece DLC-coated platinum limited edition, the watch features a set of splendid decorations evoking the feat accomplished by the Austrian sportsman.
